Ear Cuffs Are the Pierce-Free Cheat Code to Upping Your Earring Game
Rack 'em, stack 'em, pile 'em to nail that side profile #selfie.| April 3, 2020
When it comes to jewellery, layering pieces might just be the oldest styling trick in the book. Rings, necklaces, bracelets – you simply pile on more for effect. The earring department, however, is a whole other ball game. You can’t quite put on multiple earrings as per your whim and fancy the way you can slip rings on and off your fingers. For starters, you’d obvi need piercings. And more than one on each lobe.
Puncturing multiple holes into your ear all in the name of fashion? Kuddos to you braveheart if you’ve been there, done that. For the rest of us non-committal folks, ear cuffs are our cheat code to layering earrings without actually getting anything pierced. Not being able to sleep on my side for days? The risk of infection? No, thank you. Ear cuffs, they slide right on and come right off entirely pain-free.
On the days when you’re feeling a little fancier than the classic hoops but don’t quite want to pull out the statement door knockers, piling on the ear cuffs is the (less trodden) path to go down. From minimal hoops, bejewelled and pearl embellished alternatives to sculptural geometric shaped, it’s a dizzying array of choices out there. Also, there are really no rules to follow with ear cuffs. You make them up as you go. It’s like making a bowl of salad, you kind of just toss it all together without ever really going wrong.
Going further with the food analogy, ear cuffs are the secret ingredient to jooj up your side profile #selfie when you’re not having the best face day – the stacks on your ears would draw the attention right away. Our only gripe with ear cuffs though? They do sometimes fall out. But hey, in life, you win some and you lose some.
